Tip of the Week - #095 (Putting Local Information on Bands)

Keywords: 3-digit number, bookbands, ics information, media, post-it note bands

The ICS Committee has decided that if an institution would like to put local information on a band for THEIR students (concerning fines, etc.), that this is okay.  This means you are allowed to do this on incoming material from other libraries.  You should NOT put anything extra on the band for books you are sending to other libraries.

This may not be practical for the post-it bands given the lack of space.  Do not put stickers directly on books or media.  These stickers should only be place on the paper bands in places that do not cover up any important information already on the band such as the three digit code or the owning library information.
